  2. 2. 32% 24% of global food supply by energy content (calories) of global food supply by weight Source: WRI analysis based on FAO. 2011. Global food losses and food waste – extent, causes and prevention. Rome: UN FAO. Food loss and waste represent huge amounts of the global food supply
  3. 3. Source: WRI analysis based on FAO. 2011. Global food losses and food waste – extent, causes and prevention. Rome: UN FAO. During or immediately after harvesting on the farm After produce leaves the farm for handling, storage, and transport During industrial or domestic processing and/or packaging During distribution to markets, including losses at wholesale and retail markets Losses in the home or business of the consumer, including restaurants and caterers Food is lost or wasted along the entire value chain
  4. 4. Source: WRI analysis based on FAO. 2011. Global food losses and food waste – extent, causes and prevention. Rome: UN FAO. Food loss is more prevalent in developing countries while food waste is more prevalent in developed countries 100% = 1.5 quadrillion kcal
  5. 5. Source: WRI analysis based on FAO. 2011. Global food losses and food waste – extent, causes and prevention. Rome: UN FAO. North America has the highest per capita food loss and waste Kcal/capita/day
  6. 6. Source: WRI analysis based on FAO. 2011. Global food losses and food waste—extent, causes and prevention. Rome: UN FAO. As regions get richer, waste becomes more prevalent than loss (Percent of kcal lost and wasted) Note: Number may not sum to 100 due to rounding.
